Get To Know Your Customers Day!

The Team at Secret Source Marketing work very closely with customers, helping them build their company. During this time, we naturally get to know our customers pretty well from a business and personal point of view, as we work together.  So on #GetToKnowYourCustomersDay we thought we'd ask our customers a really personal question, read on to find out more...

Seeing as most of us have been deskbound over the past 12+ months, we wanted to help understand what is on our customers' desks, with the view into getting a personal insight that might allow us to help them a bit further, over and above our marketing services.

So we asked customers two questions; 

1. While working at your desk, what are your creature comforts, or what cannot live without on your desk?

2. What would ideally like to have on your desk that might help you have a better day?

We had some very interesting responses, read below...

People value on their desk;

  • "I have a photo of my family on my home office desk to remind me why I'm working so hard"
  • "I have post-it notes on my desk ready, because in a digital world, I like to have something tacit to put my actions on. I get great satisfaction screwing them up when each task is complete!"
  • "I love my posh notepad, I note down all my ideas"
  • "A never ending supply of Mini Eggs..."
  • "I could not function without my desk fan because I don't have any windows in my office and during the summer it gets very hot."
  • "Cup of coffee - because it's essential!"
  • "My heater, I could not have survived lockdown without it!"
  • "I have a clear quartz crystal on my desk as it inspires the energy and creativity across all of my work"
  • "One thing 'under' my desk I love  - puppy sleeping on my feet"
  • "Rugby Ball - so when I get annoyed, I can fire it against the wall. - and calm"
  • "I Have a traditional banker’s lamp made by me on my desk because I always wanted one when I was a child (old soul!) so as soon as I had a nice enough desk I made one."
  • "I have a Play-doh heart shaped ‘Biscuit’ on a plastic plate lovingly made by my 5 year as it’s Easter holidays… made me smile all afternoon (even if it's dried out a bit now)"
